Where to Buy
 

Although highlighting your hair is a much more complicated process than applying overall color, reviewers say that the Revlon Frost & Glow highlighting kit is pretty foolproof, especially if you're looking to create subtle highlights. The kit comes with a highlighting cap with strategically placed holes that allow you to create streaks, and hair is pulled through the holes with a plastic hooking tool. Some users say it is too flimsy, but metal hair hooks can be purchased separately at most beauty supply stores. Revlon Frost & Glow is available in three shades, which reviewers say look as good as professional highlights, but be aware that the whole process takes a while, and it works better if you have someone to help you do the back of your head. If you want dramatic highlights -- for example, platinum highlights in dark hair -- experts say you're better off going to a professional salon.

Prevention magazine recommends Revlon Frost & Glow, but it isn't clear if any testing was done. User reviews at MakeupAlley.com and TotalBeauty.com provide the best insight into consumer experience.
